DELIVERY OF TRAINING

What is flexible learning or flexible delivery?

MCIE provides flexible delivery for some of its courses. This may include course delivery through a combination of face to face (in class), workbooks, online, or in the workplace (practical placements). It also means a course may be self-paced or flexible in how long it takes to complete. This does not apply to all courses however so please check with the course advisor to identify if flexible delivery applies to your course of choice.

FUNDING OPTIONS

What type of concessions are available to me?

Now is the ideal time to make a start on gaining new skills, or upgrading your existing skills, to help you get the job you want.

The Victorian Training Guarantee makes vocational training more accessible to people who do not hold a post-school qualification, or who want to gain a higher level qualification than they already hold.

There are now an unlimited number of government-subsidised training places available to people who meet the eligibility criteria.

How do I know if I am eligible for government subsidised training?

Generally, you are eligible for a government-subsidised training place if you are:

  • an Australian citizen
  • an Australian Permanent Resident (holder of a permanent visa)
  • a New Zealand citizen

and are any of the following:

  • under 20 years of age
  • seeking to enrol in a Foundation Skills List course (and do not hold a Diploma or above qualification or are receiving core skills training in other sectors)
  • seeking to enrol in VCE or VCAL
  • seeking to enrol in an apprenticeship
  • 20 years and older and ‘upskilling’ by seeking to enrol in a course at a higher level than your existing qualification.

 

If you are enrolled at a school, you will not be able to receive a government-subsidised training place for a course through the Victorian Training Guarantee, unless you are undertaking the course as part of a School-Based Apprenticeship or Traineeship. The Government supports schools in other ways to offer vocational training to their students, so you should discuss all your options with your school.

 

You can also check what you may be eligible for using the interactive Victorian Skills Gateway Eligibility Indicator.

Can I be assisted with fees?

MCIE has scholarships as well as a range of options including payment plans to assist you.

Please enquire with your course advisor when enrolling.

If I do more than one course at the same time, can I get funding for both courses?

A maximum number of two courses can be commenced in one year, and a maximum of two courses can be funded at one time. Foundation skills courses do not count towards the limits.
